Rampathon 2019

Our 25th year as ramp captain for Rampathon makes this our 29th ramp built.  This year’s ramp is near Mt. Si in North Bend.  At a 2-step rise, a straight section at 15 lineal feet for a middle-aged Swede with centro nucleo myopathy: a muscle disorder that makes it difficult to walk up and down stairs.

The Quality Of Quality

The Soffit Remains The Same

Custom building cabinetry to fit all of the customer wishes while making sure it all lines up under the existing soffit is no small task. This project was done with minimal drywall repair and without refinishing floors. 2-tone cabinetry and 2-tone backsplash set a neutral warmth for accenting accouterments. Custom storage allows for better access to kitchen wares by making the boxes built to 1/8″ increments instead of 3″ increments. Cabinetry was painted in place…
